Utility Disconnection Protection

Taxonomy Code: BV-8900.9220

Programs, generally funded through utility rates, that prohibit utility disconnections during severe weather for households with vulnerable members including people who are ill or elderly or have disabilities or other hardships. In some jurisdictions, low income individuals and families may qualify. Regulations vary from state to state , but generally specify high and/or low temperatures that trigger a disconnection ban (though some jurisdictions in the U.S. require a special order by the Public Utility Commission) and explicit eligibility criteria. In some areas, the regulations apply year-round to people with serious illnesses.
